Dear Tomorrow,

Hello world,

In 2020 Earth is experiencing deforestation, rising sea-levels, changes in precipitation patterns leading to vast floods, hot summers leading to droughts, ice decay in the Arctic, pollution in the atmosphere, loss of natural habitats, and more. Due to human activities from big industrial agriculture, burning fossil fuels, releasing methane in the atmosphere, single used plastic, oil spills, and more.

I am hoping for 2100 there is restrictions on agriculture industries, leading to changes in people’s diets. Therefore, instead of big fast food chains there will be more plant based food choices. Hydroponic farming is also something beneficial I hope to see in the future, by doing this we can stop deforestation and rehabilitate habitats and endangered species. This will help cut carbon emissions substantially leading to controlled temperatures. Another hope for the future world is a more energy conscious world using renewable energy from wind and solar power energy resources. This will also eliminate carbon emissions from affecting the atmosphere. Instead of relying on oil, we will use renewable energy sources for our everyday lives, such as electric operated cars. Another thing I hope to see is carbon taxes on major industrial companies to help sustain minimal pollution in the air. Also eliminating one use plastic and creating decomposing packaging to help keep our oceans clean. I am also hoping to see the use of oil gone, to help prevent oil spills from damaging oceans and coral reefs. By making these changes it will lead to controlled temperatures and more natural seasons. Leading no abnormal ice decay and preventing sea levels rising and coral reefs will not be ruined from increased temperatures/oil spills, and earth will restore.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.
